Made in the USA - Nesco American Harvest FD-50 Snackmaster Pro 4-Tray Dehydrator Professional food dehydrator and jerky maker uses patented fan to force heated air up the exterior pressurized chamber. Heated air is forced horizontally across each tray for fast, even and nutritious dehydrating. 1200 RPM motor and specially designed 5in. fan ensures the fastest, most nutritious drying.
Drying apple slices in just six hours and beef jerky in nine-and-a-half, this 500-watt dehydrator is exceptionally fast for its price range. Its patented system pressurizes air up through the drying trays' outer rings and across each tray, ensuring not only speed but uniformity, so foods dry evenly. The dehydrator's thermostat adjusts from 95 degrees F up to 145 degrees F, offering flexibility for drying different items. Each of the four trays is 12-3/4 inches in diameter and 1/2-inch deep (the durable plastic dehydrator is 13-1/2 by 8-1/4 inches overall). Additional trays may be purchased, providing up to a total of 10 square feet for drying lots of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and/or flowers at one time. A fruit-roll sheet inserts into a tray so that applesauce or other fruit sauces can be dried into healthful snacks. You can also use the tray for drying other liquid foods, such as soups and sauces, for camping trips. This dehydrator comes with beef-jerky spices and a booklet with recipes and instructions. --Fred Brack

Negatives: The fan is loud and could be heard from other rooms. A nice feature to have would have been a built in timer instead of having to buy an external one.
Otherwise, I was pleased with the results and so was the family judging by how fast that first batch is going!
On the first run 100 tomatoes were dehydrated, it took roughly 48 hours to do it. In the end the tomato's were well dehydrated. After that we smoked some hot peppers with hickory wood in our smoker, then dehydrated them. The job was a little messy, because all of the seeds came out.
The unit is a little noisy, estimate that it sounds like a microwave fan running. After a while it becomes annoying, if you are around it all the time. Additionally we have been storing the vegetables in italian rubber seal glass clip jars.
We find that loading the unit at night before going to bed works well for us. That way when we get up in the morning, the job is either done, or almost there.
Hope that helps....
